Letʼsdoc Fellowship Residency Programme aims to support the alternative independent documentary vision and foster emerging talents through two-stage mentoring at incubation labs of 4 days each. Participants are mentored by some of the prominent Indian filmmakers in the field of documentary. The last edition has been a full scale residency where peer exchange among the participants reached a new height.

The specially designed fellowship programme intends to encourage talented, emerging documentary storytellers take their artistic work forward for possible completion through guided development of proposed ideas and future networking with international producing, co-creation and creative collaboration.

Due To COVID-19 Impact , this edition will take place virtually.

The programme also offers further development of the proposed documentary, providing input on skill of writing for documentary and creating a visual trailer to deal with the increasingly competitive environment of international co-production.

The fellows are intensively mentored to fine-tune their creative applications and intended object of the proposed story/idea with critical input from seasoned storytellers so that they find clarity in telling their stories better/

The mentoring process leads to the Fellowship Award that supports two promising projects with a cash grant of Rs. 1,00,000 each and follow-up mentoring and co-production guidance. The awardee will be selected based on the promise and progressive development of the projects by the mentors at the end of 2nd session. The Grant intends to support further research, development and visual trailers.
